Published

on

Philthy Rich is a man of longevity. He’s been putting in some serious work since 2007, releasing over more than 50 albums. That’s more than most rappers get in their entire careers. Through his hard work and dedication to the streets, he has reached OG status. If you rap and come to the Bay Area, he’s who you check into. He’s recently collaborated with the likes of Iamsu! And Kash Doll and looks to continue his successful path.

Bio:
Philthy Rich was born on January 30, 1984 in Oakland, California. He grew up in a Bay Area slum named Seminary and frequently got into trouble. After being kicked out by his mother when he was in third grade, Rich lived with teachers, in homeless shelters, and occasionally jail cells. He wouldn’t get exposed to the rap game until the year 2006 when he told a member of his neighborhood that he really wanted to record music. The guy, in turn, reached out to Keak Da Sneak who informed Philthy that he’d have to give up the street life if he wanted to really pursue it. He started by giving 50 CDs to record stores to sell and eventually ended up giving them well over 1,000. In 2007, he embarked on a tour called “Stan Bizzness BG’s” with Mistah F.A.B., J. Stalin, Shady Nate, Beeda Weeda, Ray Ryda, Eddi Projex & Lil Al tha Gamer. The tour would end up being canceled due to Rich being arrested, but his burgeoning stardom had already begun to grow. He began releasing plenty of albums over the next couple of years, showing his dedication to the craft. In 2013, he signed a record deal with RBC Records & eOne Music. Since then, he’s continued to grow and work hard as he takes over the rap game.

Spotlight: Young Roc’s “Gone Till November” still cranks

Published

on

In a land full of melodic rappers who know how to ride beats, Roc stands out at his sheer ability to excel at it. We previously covered his magnetic single “Upp,” remarking how refreshing the single was and how it shows a new side to Detroit’s rap scene. Another one of his tracks that we’ve been hung up on is “Gone Til November” which exhibits this same sense of melodic delight.

The production is silky smooth like Jodeci meets contemporary trap. Young Roc does his thing, as usual, finding a delicate balance between singing and rapping that’s hard for most rappers to do. Featured artist Nasaan holds his own against Roc’s melodies with his own, creating a track that’s been stuck in our heads for a while.

Check out Young Roc’s “Gone Till November” below.
